christine, just found your answer to my message, i think we are all in the same boat, i have talked to several researchers that have come up against the famous brick wall, i am from abraham and mary's son oliver perry, james abraham, william frances and robert earl, i have many descendants also but nothing on their ancestors. i have seen the land records you mentioned but from my research i don;t believe that is the jacob born in 1759. my husband and i took a trip to the wouthern part of va and there were three jacob devaults living in that area in the late 1700's but not jacob and mary. we are planing a trip to hampshire co in a couple of weeks, i have been making phone calls to the different devaults in the area and i have not found too much just a middle name here and a long lost cousin .....all seeking the same information. we will keep trying and maybe someday some will find something in the attic, basement or old trunk. let me hear from you and if you need any of the information i have i do share. i have been to their graves twice and hope to get back one more time the dates we have for both are correct according to their markers also abraham's and mary's also.
